the economy is that investment, and the fact it's declining? wow, that's really a bad sign. neil: scott, a better future indicator? what so many ceos are saying i'm preparing for the worst just in case. suspect that a more telling future? >> yeah, look at consumer spending numbers. the positive note is it increased, but guess what? it's down from the first quarter and down from last year so you're right, the businesses look at the dollars from the wallets saying, hey, they are not flying out of there. if you look the the investment numbers, convicting to gdp last year and the year prior, which, by the way, gdp, 1.7%, below the trend this year, 3% in 2010. the economy's deaccelerating. neil: adam, do you think of that? >> well, things could be better. fact of the matter is the economy is growing. it's not growing as much as we'd like it to grow, but it is growing. >> not as fast as before. >> the housing sector's recovering, key, it should recover. it's been down for so long, and the financial system is sound, you know, balance sheets generally good, so we can focus on the negative, or,
. thanks so much for that. >>> turning to the economy third quarter gdp came in at 2% today. not great. better than the sat 1.3% growth rate last quarter but a new survey of economists says there is still no light at the end of the tunnel. if automatic spending cuts kick in it could cost the economy $100 billion. it gets worse though. they say the t hikes that could come are twice as big of a problem. they would cost $200 billion. my favorite economist peter morici is here to commiserate with me over this one. this report is staggering. i like it though i have to say when somebody goes out and quantify the impact of these things because i don't want emotion. i want to focus in on the numbers. so let's do that. $200 billion out of the prate sector if the bush tax cuts go away. 100 billion of government spending that would stop under the sequestration. do those numbers sound about right to you and is there a multiplier at work here? does it matter more if you take money away from the consumer in forms of evaporating tax cuts or the government spending? >> well i don't know that it matter
